Excellent product.

 

Those that complained of static - it is a matter of making sure you are connected properly for the type of vhs tape. I found with mono tapes, I played it on a mono player with a Y connector for the two audio inputs to the device. That eliminated the...

Quick and easy

No manual - a little trial and error works ; DVD software is poor - I used MS DVD program

Would be great if it were for the terrible static

 

If it weren't for the static popping in the audio that hurts my ears, this would be an outstanding product. I can't seem to solve the problem. I know others who use this product don't seem to have this problem, so I must have gotten a bad roll of the...

Easy to use and set up, decent video quality

There is this static popping in the audio that I can't seem to do anything about. It drives me crazy and by itself makes the videos unwatchable. The video has some static of its own, but it's not as big of an issue. It also has its occasional audio/vide

Does the job, Windows 7 64-bit

 

Very cost effective way to digitize old video tapes. My kid used to use it to capture his XBox 360 gaming but traded up to a HD recorder for that.

Easy to use. Cheap. No problems with install, I just plugged the thing into a USB port and then downloaded the lastest version of Windows 7 64-bit software and it just all worked fine

Can't find info on different recording formats. No manual available online

Will record for 1hour, computer hangs, must be rebooted

 

I have wasted too much time for this to not work as advertised. DO NOT BUY!

Will record for 1 hour

Ulead video studio has more help with its knowledge base. Fails to record with either Ulead or One Touch Video Capture that is provided with the device for more than one hour. So the device or software is at fault. This happens on a win 7, 64 bit or wi

Doesn't Seem to Work With Win7

 

I finally got the program loaded, but a dropdown menu on the screen to select input is blank. Where I should be able to selct NTSC, PAL, (whatever) video format from VHS tape on the on-screen capture window, NOTHING shows! So, of course, nothing gets...

Good Price (N**E**)...and this sitem seems good (on paper) for what I wanted to do

Problems loading on computer with Win7 Prem HE 64-bit. Support at Diamond responded with a question on what wires I was using. I responded. I asked help for getting the S/W and connecton working, but no reply form Diamond. Just made a second plea befor

Good with video, bad with audio

 

I'm sure it's not the worst capture device out there; in fact it's probably far from it from what I know about other devices. But I know that there are better products out there. If you don't care too much about the occasional static that you may...

1. Extremely simple to set up and use ; 2. Good package contents ; 3. Solid video quality

1. Audio has its moments of static ; 2. Minor issue: the green bar that appears on your screen when you first open the software on your computer. Thankfully, it's simple to get rid of (just open a previously made video)

A bit quirky, but works. About Green Bar

 

I have used this device and software for several weeks now, and have made many, many hours of transfers from VHS / VHS-C to MPG files. Given that I can (thus far) always rid my screen of the occasional green bar at bottom problem by closing then...

Easy hook up and software installation. Records as expected

I get the green bar at bottom occasionally, too. When I do, thus far I have been able to close then re-open the program to get the bar to go away

Consumer review by:

For what you pay for it, it does a good job.

 

Have had this installed on three different machines. You definitely must follow the installation procedure in the manual because it is @ss backwards from any other hardware setup. Have transferred only six tapes so far, but have had no problems. Burned...

Good price, easy to use (for me anyway)

Would like the resolution to be a little higher. Manual needs more information about the different format options, but that's what the internet is for
